Student Volunteer Connection

What is SVC?

The Student Volunteer Connection (SVC) is a student organization that encourages TAMU-CC students to be actively involved and committed to service by providing accessible learning opportunities that connect the Corpus Christi community. Our mission is to create an understanding of active citizenship by making our #IslanderImpact.

What does SVC do? 

The primary goal of SVC is to enhance the University by providing service programs that: 

  • Unify the campus community and Corpus Christi community. 
  • Cultivate student leadership. 
  • Promote civic responsibility. 
  • Contribute to the retention efforts of the University. 

Throughout the year, SVC hosts several events both on and off campus that are available to all students to bring awareness to global and local issues and encourage student action, as well as opportunities to give back to the community through service. Some signature events include Islander Clean, Service Saturdays, Watch Nights, Food Bank Fridays, Alternative Breaks, MLK Day of Service, and so many more.
